Rapid and with pinpoint accuracy. Piece after piece

Chips, resistors, condensers, transistors – components that can be as small as a few tenths of a millimetre. Modern assembly systems can achieve 120 000 assembly operations per hour, and 2 000 finished circuit boards leave the assembly line every hour – a masterpiece of precision, piece after piece.

It makes perfect sense, therefore, that every movement in this process must be supported with extremely high precision and reliability. In every axis. For example, on the x and y axis by means of the low-maintenance, four-row KUVE monorail guidance system

Where high accuracy positioning is required, the miniature flat cage guidance system RWS from INA/HYDREL is suitable – a cost-effective design solution matched precisely to the limited stroke motion involved in assembly operations. A system comprising guideways separated by cylindrical roller flat cages allows extremely precise, low-friction movements. Due to the very small spacing between the moving parts (gap seals), there is normally no need for additional sealing. Extremely smooth running, high load capacity high rigidity and long life – these are the reasons this guidance system is highly suitable for your productronics applications.
